England manager Gareth Southgate has provided an update on Trent Alexander-Arnold after he suffered an injury during the friendly victory over Austria, just nine days before Euro 2020.

Liverpool star Alexander-Arnold was selected in England’s 26-man squad for this summer’s Euros on Tuesday.

The 22-year-old was forced off late on against Austria after making a regulation clearance, hobbling around the pitch with the aid of a physio despite the fact England had already used all of their substitutions.

Southgate said: ‘We’re going to have a little look. It’s not good to see the way he went off but we’ll have to assess it over the next 24 hours. I think it’s a thigh [injury].

‘The medical team are still assessing it. We just have to see. It’s not a good sign. We’ll know more in the next 24-48 hours.

‘Let’s see how Trent is first and then we’ll go from there. We don’t know the full extent but the last thing you want is to see him go off in the way he did.’
